Are these good temps for corsair h50?

Hi. I just bought my corsair h50 yesterday and installed it, here are my temps. btw, stock thermal paste was only used.

1 fan, lowest: 45, highest: 60
2 fan(push pull) lowest was 40 highest: 57

are these good temps?

I bought last night a tuniq tx-3. I'm thinking of replacing the thermal compound.

is tuniq tx-3 the best thermal compound? if not, what is the best compound?

and also, how do you apply it on corsair h50? Thanks in advance.

We can't really tell if they're good temps until we get an idea on what CPU you're running and how far you've overclocked it. So please post up some more details :) 

Sorry I can't help with thermal compound choice, I just use Arctic Silver 5 (even if there are slightly better ones, its easy to get and outperforms stock stuff).

(Edit: also are they Tcase temps (CPU Temp) or Tjunction (Core Temperatures)? Check out the Core2 Temperature guide in the Overclocking forum (its right up the top) if you don't know what I'm referring to.)

John, we need to know your case, CPU, voltages, overclocks, air flow in the case, ambient temps during measuring, your program your using to measure temps. Otherwise we don't have a clue if it's good or bad.

Your asking us to know whats in the sealed box. I dunno, open it?

cpu: intel q6600 @ 3.0ghz

voltage: bios-1.35 cpuz:1.32

overclock to 3.0

air flow: haf 932
2 x 230mm intake side and front
h50 push pull intake from the rear 2x120mm
1 x 120mm and 1 x 120 mm exhaust top

ambient temp is 29 C

core temp is used

core temp goes 51 on highest, 38 lowest orthos 30 mins. ( because i have to leave the house.)

are these temps ok? and also, which is better program for testing, orthos or prime95

* used tuniq tx-3 on current temps.

Thanks!

Your temps are just fine. The only way you know if they are as good as another cooler is to get one and put it the same exact rig at the same ambients. Run the same fans too.

Lots run the same chips at temps in the high 60's with no problems.

The H50 can handle a Q6600 with no problems at all, just like a TRUE with push/pull fans.

Peeps say that P95 keps it at 100% better than anything else, it's the standard.

thank you. i got an error on core 2, it said fatal error. something about 0.4 is expected. what is it about? is my rig stable?

No, errors mean that it isnt stable. Try adding some voltage, but just a little because it didnt crash.

i increased my vid to 1.37500. I don't know why cpu-z displays much lower temps but i think it is the vdroop thing? Can somebody explain what is this vdroop and how it will affect overclocking. and also, running prime 95 small fpu,i'm getting 59,59,56,56 temps. lowest are 43,40,37,36. i think it idles at around 43-45

are these temps ok?

your temps on load are still in good shape for your 1.3 vcore. cpu-z displays low temps on idle instances, try looking at it when you run prime 95 or orthos

john_antonio,

Vdroop is not a short and simple explantion. You couldn't Google it? OK, here ya go ... http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=Vdroop

You could also try SEARCH ... you cant miss it ... top-dead-center on any page.

Also, you could've checked the Stickies, which I already suggested in my previous post, but OK, here ya go ...

Tcase = CPU temperature
Tjunction = Core temperature

From Intel's Processor Spec Finder - http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLA...

Q6600 G0:

Vcore Max 1.5
Tcase Max (CPU temperature) 71c
Tjunction (Core temperature) 76c

The value shown in Intel's Processor Spec Finder for the Thermal Specification is Tcase Max (CPU temperature), not Tjunction (Core temperature), which is a common misconception among many enthusists. Since Core temperature always runs 5c higher than CPU temperature at load, which is shown in the following Intel document - http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/0709/0709.1861.pdf - just add 5c to the Thermal Specification to find the corresponding Core temperature.

CompuT, we got a good 'same brain' You don't research, you don't learn, you should just buy a Dell.

It's a hobby, not a buy it forget it thing.

To the OP: Don't you think a fault like Fatal Error means something is wrong? Maybe you need to back off the overclocks? The program your using to test has a website you can go to, and get tons and tons of info what you got a Fatal Error for. You can spend 2-3 hours just looking at info to get it right and fix it Instead of posting here.
